Create Harmony and Remove All Suffering with THE HEART OF THE PRAJNA PARAMITA SUTRA

Published November 19, 2014 by jptan2012

I’m quite excited with the new Feng Shui product released by Lillian Too through her World of Feng Shui store. I’m referring to the Heart Sutra Pillar. While I may not be quite sure why she recommended the Heart Sutra Pillar for the Five Yellow Star because it still lacks the symbol of the five element which is essential in fighting the 5 Yellow Star, I can still think of a number of reasons why this is really good news.

First, I believe this is the first time that somebody has made the Heart Sutra in that form. I’m referring to how she made it. While it is not real gold, the gold finished of the pillar will still add some yang energy to the already powerful The Heart of Prajna Paramita most commonly called Heart Sutra. Plus making it into a pillar makes it easier to display anywhere at home.

But what is THE HEART OF PRAJNA PARAMITA SUTRA?The Heart Of Prajna Paramita Sutra

To answer that allow me to explain a little what is a sutra. A sutra is a text in Buddhism or Hinduism that talks about a life of a Buddha or Bodhisattva or virtues or teachings of a Buddha, or most of the time both. Literally it means a thread that holds things together.

A sutra mostly refers to canonical Buddhist scriptures, which are oral teachings of Shakyamuni Buddha.

The Heart of the Prajna Paramita Sutra is just one of the Prajna Paramita sutras, and it is a highly revered sutra and quite unique because it is the only sutra that prominently features a Bodhisattva. Most sutras, if not all, are taken or taught in the perspective of Shakyamuni Buddha. Shakyamuni (also spelled as Sakyamuni) is the one teaching or giving the teaching in the sutra. However, in The Heart of Prajna Paramita Sutra it features Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara, which is also more popularly known as Kuan Yin. The sutra was written in Kuan Yin’s perspective and it’s Kuan Yin vision that is talked about in this particular sutra.

The Heart of Prajna Paramita Sutra or Heart Sutra is also the shortest sutra in the world. But, it is one of the most complete sutra in such a way that it has summarized the heart of all the Buddhist teachings, thus it is called The Heart of the Prajna Paramita Sutra.

Wearing or displaying any sutras has the power to bless and protect the wearer or the surroundings where the sutra is displayed. But different sutras might slightly give off a different special blessing. For example, The Medicine Buddha sutra will give off a blessing of health, protection, and wealth.

Displaying or wearing The Heart of the Prajna Paramita Sutra will bless the wearer or the place with harmony, peace, protection, and wealth. It will also help the person coming across it attained a deeper knowledge of the Buddhist teachings, or help pave the way for the person to be ready for Buddhist scriptures. More than that as the promise of The Heart Sutra, it can also remove all suffering!

Displaying The Heart of Prajna Paramita Sutra is definitely a powerful tool to access its blessings. Personally though I prefer wearing it because by having it around or on your body all the time means you are constantly blessed with harmony, peace, and protection from all negative chi, and constant access to wealth luck. In fact, one of my favorite pendants is a gold Kuan Yin pendant with the sutra scripted at the back of the pendant. Chinese believes in the power of gold, and if a holy image or scripture is put in gold, this makes the effect even more powerful.

It will also be extremely beneficial if one can recite the sutra. Before reciting the sutra first ask the guidance and blessing of Shakyamuni Buddha by saying: NAMO FUNDAMENTAL TEACHER SHAKYAMUNI BUDDHA (3X).

 

THE HEART OF PRAJNA PARAMITA SUTRA

Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara,

While deeply immersed in prajna paramita,

Clearly perceived the empty nature of the five skandhas,

And transcended all suffering.

Sariputra! Form is not different from emptiness,

Emptiness is not different from form.

Form is emptiness, emptiness if form.

So it is with feeling, conception, volition, and consciousness.

Sariputra! All dharma are empty in character;

Neither arising nor ceasing,

Neither impure nor pure,

Neither increasing nor decreasing.

Therefore, in emptiness, there is no form;

There is no feeling, conception, volition, or consciousness;

No eye, ear, nose, tongue, body or mind;

No form, sound, smell, taste, touch, or dharmas;

No realm of vision, and so forth,

Up to no realm of mind – consciousness;

No ignorance or ending of ignorance, and so forth,

Up to no aging and death or ending of aging and death.

There is no suffering, no cause, no extinction, no path.

There is no wisdom and no attainment.

There is nothing to be attained.

By way prajna paramita,

The bodhisattva’s mind is free from hindrances.

With no hindrances, there is no fear;

Freed from all distortion and delusion,

Ultimate nirvana is reached.

By way of prajna paramita,

Buddhas of the past, present, and future

Attain anuttara – samyak – sambodhi.

Therefore, prajna paramita

Is the great powerful mantra,

The great enlightening mantra,

The supreme and peerless mantra.

It can remove all suffering.

This is the truth beyond all doubt.

And the prajna paramita mantra is spoken thus:

Tadyatha, Om Gate Gate Paragate Parasamagate Bodhi Soha

 

The last line can be repeated 108 times.

Namo Sangharama Bodhisattva: A Bodhisattva that Protects, Grants Wealth Blessings, Protects Marital Relationships and is Better Known as Kuan Kong

Published November 18, 2014 by jptan2012

kuan kong 3The first time I wrote about Kuan Kong was last February 15, 2012. Since then I have not written much about him except for a few mention in some blog articles and about the boy who is believed to have been saved by Kuan Kong from his death when Typhoon Yolanda (with international name Haiyan) hit the Philippines.

After almost 2 years, I am once again writing about Him because I feel that not to write about Him more is a great injustice to Kuan Kong (also called or spelled as Guan Gong, Guan Yu, Kuan Yu, Kwan Kong, Kwan Ti, Kuan Ti, Guan Ti, or Guan Sheng Di Jun).

Guan Yu as he is known as a person died in 220, but his date of birth is unknown. He actually served as a general with Liu Bei, as Eastern Han Dynasty warlord. It must be noted that although they’re called warlords it doesn’t necessarily mean they’re evil; we have to understand that during those time it is the norm.

Guan Yu is one of the best-known Chinese historical figures throughout East Asia that has slowly taken on the world. As mentioned in my last post about Guan Yu or Kuan Kong, the web is a treasure trove of stories about his life. However, I don’t think anyone alive now can actually say for certain what are the most accurate facts and what are the embellishments because people by nature loves to romanticized a person they admire or idolized. However, please be assured that in the bits and pieces of his life that I will share here in this post I will share with you what are the stories that historically proven and accepted. In the absence of that ‘confirmation’, it doesn’t mean that it didn’t happen, but it only means that it may be not very accurate or that it is widely accepted but may be argued by some historians. kuan kong 2

What is not arguable here is Guan Yu is so much loved and so much respected that he is the only person who became a deity or Bodhisattva in three of the major oldest religion in China. Although there has been a lot of crossovers between Buddhism, Taoism, Confucianism, like Kuan Yin being a high goddess in Taoism, and giving rise to the unofficial religion called Chinese Buddhism, Guan Yu or Kuan Kong or Guan Gong, is the only historically human being who became a significant deity or lord in Taoism, a significant Bodhisattva in Buddhism, and a significant god in Confucianism.  Not to mention that he is also a prominent figure in Chinese folk religion.

Guan Yu is known for being a very good general. In fact, he won most of his wars with as little bloodshed as possible. He doesn’t believe in killing all the enemies. When he wins a war he will not take unnecessary prisoners, so the prisoners that he takes are only the high officials and he would always treat them with utmost humanity. Those soldiers who yield to him are given the choice to join his troops or leave and go home to their family. His wars always has a cause and he will only resort to go to war only if he is absolutely sure in his heart that the war will in the end will serve greater good and is only the last resort. This kind of attitude runs akin to the Buddhist teaching that states one cannot judge the means but one can only judge what’s inside the heart of a person. I hope this will not be taken out – of – context, but in a simplistic point of view, what it means is that at the end some means might be seemingly evil or bad but in the end it is the deepest intent of the heart of the person whether the act is really evil or not. I would like to expound on this teaching a little further and leave Guan Yu’s story for a while in the next paragraph.

His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama once shared a story. A guy went on a trip via a ship. While he was onboard the ship he came across a plot by two men to plant a bomb on the ship and kill all the people onboard as an act of terrorism. The man went to inform the captain, but after some reluctant investigation, for they didn’t believe him, it was said that there was no plot at all. Still he did his best to make people believe him, however, nobody believed him. He was totally left in despair as to how to save the people on board. As the time of doom arrives he decided to confront the two terrorists, his first approach was to talk them out of what they plan to do, but because the terrorists perceived that he is a threat to what they have set out to do they manhandled him, brought him to their cabin to either bound him there or kill him. All throughout the man never feared for his life but he feared for the life of the hundreds of people onboard the ship. He knows that he has to do something otherwise all the people on the ship will perish, but he also knows that it is not only the people onboard the ship that will perish but their family will also grieve for them. He was left with no choice and although he knows what he needs to do is wrong, in the end he was left with no choice but to fight the two terrorists and hurt them enough to restrain them. In the process, he accidentally killed both terrorists. There is another version of the story that says he also died with them, an act of suicide that also killed the other terrorist. Whatever the version of the ending the message is quite clear. Killing and suicide are both considered graved sin one that causes eons of negative karma, but the man was reborn as a high lama that is because according to the Dalai Lama, while the act itself alone is pure evil, the deepest intent, meaning deep in his heart, it was not simply to kill the two men, but to save hundreds of live and prevent several more the pain of grief. Superficially speaking this is a Buddhist concept that can be easily abused. But let us always remember that in the end it is not our fellowmen’s judgment that we must be wary of but our own deep conscience and that of karma.

kuan kong 4Going back to Guan Yu, one of the most famous verified story about him was when he took a hit from an arrow. It was a poisoned arrow and the doctor needs to clean his wound right to the bone. He wants to administer a strong alcohol (medicinal wine) to Guan Yu so that he won’t feel the pain, or at the very least he will be able to tolerate the pain as he would open and clean it down to the bone. Guan Yu refused to take the alcohol because he believes taking the alcohol will totally cloud his mind. Please note that at this point he is already showing some signs that his belief are leaning towards Buddhism. For if he were purely Taoist, it would have been fine for him to drink the medicinal wine even if it clouds his mind. For Buddhism, medicinal wine are allowed as long as it doesn’t cloud your mind so much that you are unable to control it. What happen next are two different versions of the story. One version states that he didn’t take the wine but instead went into deep meditation by concentrating on a single matter and in his case he choose to play Chinese chess with himself, and that he totally didn’t feel any pain, even if the doctor was scraping his wound down to the bone to make sure there are no poison left. The other version is that he felt the pain but still bravely faces it rather than cloud his mind with the effects of medicinal wine. Personally, I’m unable to make a decision, which is true, because if he is a practicing Taoist or Buddhist, and if his practice is really deep already, being ‘operated’ without pain relievers, in his case medicinal wine is not impossible. But the point of importance here, is that he already showed signs of refusing wine for the reason that he doesn’t want to cloud his mind, which is a Buddhist teaching. I raise this point because it is later on very important part of his life for him to be accepted as a Bodhisattva in Buddhism. This is important because historians are not clear as to what his religious belief was.

Guan Yu is a celebrated war general, and he always wins a war until towards the end of his life. He was part of the ruling dynasty, but towards the end he notice that his leader is becoming selfish and goes to war not because it is the last resort but he simply wants to conquer more lands and wealth. He decided to break away and vowed to protect the weak. He became a minority, and it is said that in the last war he went to he already knew that he and his troops are going to be betrayed and that he will die, he figured this out when an oracle was done, something that is usually done during his time. They usually consult either a Taoist oracle or a Buddhist oracle to determine whether they should go to war. The oracle showed that he will lose the war and that he will die, but he has to go to this war for a long term good. So he went to war and true enough he and his family and closest friends were betrayed and they were captured.

His ‘archenemy’ who used to be his leader has great respect for him that he refused to kill Guan Yu, something that was totally unacceptable during those times. Not killing Guan Yu is a sign of great weakness and will render him a coward and a lame leader. To avoid killing Guan Yu and simply make him a prisoner for life he has show the people is of poor moral and a scum that needs to suffer imprisonment for the rest of his life.

As a ploy he decided to put Guan Yu in a cell full of women. Unverified stories states that Guan Yu was put amongst the wives and daughter of his friends. But Guan Yun didn’t give in to carnal desires instead he made sure that he became protector of said women. Seeing that this ploy didn’t worked. Guan Yu was then transferred to a better prison and he was imprisoned with naked virgin courtesans and was given permission to deflower them, still Guan Yu didn’t give in to carnal desire, instead he took time out too teach them to read. At the end, he was reluctantly sent to his death. kuna kong

Verified reports states that several weeks before his death, his consciousness would always appear to a monk. And he would ask him to read different sutras so that he will reach enlightenment. This is an important factor in the story and is largely the reason why he became a Bodhisattva. The question is whether his Bodhisattvahood was largely due to a testimony of a single monk? The answer is no, because while the testimony of this monk was the one that is largely popular, there are other numerous both verified and unverified reports that says that before his death his consciousness would appear to different monks to ask for a sutra reading. Also, all these monks so a vision that Guan Yu received enlightenment. In fact, some of these testimonies where not found out until the death of some the monks who saw these visions, for they were never shared but written in their testimonies or orally shared to their students or disciples.

In my last post, I already made mention of the fact that Kuan Kong or Sangharama Bodhisattva is a wealth god and a protector, however, what most people don’t know is, and I myself has temporarily forgotten about this is that he is also a Bodhisattva that helps safeguard marital relationships. This is because in his lifetime, Guan Yu, exhibited extreme loyalty and faithfulness to his wife. He never took on a concubine, or visited courtesan houses, although it was a norm during his time.

kuan kong pendantTo honor and pay homage to Sangharama Bodhisattva, it is highly recommended for you to get his image. Please choose the one that has a beautiful fierce face. Wearing a pendant of his image is also highly recommended. I myself decided to get more Kuan Kong pendant, and of course, Kuan Kong or Sangharama Bodhisattva is one of the Bodhisattva that I featured in my Wish Fulfilling and Buddha’s Blessing Mantra Pendant.

Worst Ebola Crisis: The Lesson and How to Help

Published October 21, 2014 by jptan2012

ebolaBy this time you must have heard of the Ebola crisis that’s taking the attention of all the news agency of the world. To some extent, it has even overshadowed the genocide crisis perpetuated by ISIS. One must be literally living under a rock to not have heard of the Ebola crisis.

This is not the first Ebola outbreak; in fact, Ebola was first discovered in the seventies. Since then there have been different Ebola strains that have been discovered, but according to the news, the strain that is spreading now is the most fatal of all Ebola strains. Usually, Ebola never goes out of Africa, because for some reason it dies a natural ‘death’, and it becomes manageable although not less infectious. This particular outbreak has been going on for several months but it reached its worldwide crisis point, in what I called its ‘boiling point’ a point when it becomes uncontrollable during the Hungry Ghost month. This is not very surprising because as mentioned in the post – WHAT EVERYONE NEEDS TO KNOW ABOUT 2014 HUNGRY GHOST MONTH AND MERCURY RETROGRADE. We have a 5 – month bad period which will deplete the current year’s energy. The said energy should refresh itself again when we near the 2015 Chinese New Year.
However, in this particular outbreak, although there was a cry for help, the world was too busy with something else and nobody listened to the cries of the people of Africa. I think by acknowledging that they have made some technical mistakes, WHO also admitted that they didn’t put enough attention to this latest outbreak, I can’t blame them because historically speaking people and science always wins over Ebola.

Now the question is this going to be a worldwide pandemic? If there’s going to be more infections outside Africa, such as what is happening now in US and the one in Spain, I’m afraid it is going to be an uncontrollable thing. For example, here in the Philippines, are we ready for such crisis. We have some of the best infectious diseases experts in the country, but are we technologically ready? Do we have the proper gear for our health workers?

I was just on the phone with my Guru Lama, and according to him one of the greatest lesson so far of what this Ebola crisis has taught us is that we should never stop caring, in fact, his very exact words, if loosely translated is WE SHOULD NOT STOP CARING INFINITELY FOR ALL BEINGS. Ebola happened in Africa, in some of the remote villages of Africa. Nobody heard them crying for help because they’re far and nobody thought this has the potential to become a worldwide crisis.

Ebola is everybody’s concern, because if it gets any worst than this it will become the next pandemic and I don’t think any country is ready for this. It is going to be so much worst than SARS and the AH1N1. Ebola is extremely fatal.

I’m taking time out from my busy schedule to squeeze in this post because my Guru Lama requested it. According to him, please continue doing the recommendations mentioned in the post called – PROTECT YOURSELF FROM THE ILL EFFECTS OF THE 2014 HUNGRY GHOST MONTH AND MERCURY RETROGRADE. If not, at least do recite 10 malas of the Mantra of the Bodhisattva of Compassion, Kuan Yin and 100 malas or more or as many as you can (as my friend DU would say, something is always better than nothing) a day of the Medicine Buddha Mantra. While doing try to express genuine compassion to all those who have died and have afflicted or is currently afflicted with Ebola. We may not know them but try to feel the hardships that they’re went through or going through and send them love.

Furthermore, if you can do make offerings of a lighted candle to the image of a Medicine Buddha. On top of that, spinning a prayer wheel, whether a handheld, table top, or pendant type of prayer wheel in dedication to stop the Ebola crisis will also help.

Let us remember, that Ebola might not be here yet, but if this doesn’t stop we will soon have to face it. This might not seem much, but right now this is the best we can do so let’s do it.

Mooncake Festival: A Mid – Autumn Festivities that Helps Renew Energies That Is Full of Legends and Myths Except the Real Truth

Published September 8, 2014 by jptan2012

aMooncake Festival, as it is popularly known here in the Philippines, is actually legally called the Mid – Autumn Festival 中秋節 Zhōngqiū Jié. I guess a lot of people started calling it Mooncake Festival because it is easier to remember it. Mid – Autumn festival is held on the 15th day of the 8th month of the Chinese calendar or Lunar calendar. In China, the Mid – Autumn Festival is also called Moon Festival, because it is when the moon may be roundest and possibly nearest to Earth.

The ancient or old Chinese, even before Western science has discovered it, has observed that the movement of the moon has a connection with the changes of the seasons and agricultural abundance or production. This prompted them to believe that the moon is inhabited by Goddess (the sun is inhabited by a God), who is in – charge of food production. To give thanks to the Goddess, they offer food to the moon.

Another myth is about Hou Yi and his wife Chang’e. It is said that Hou Yi a celebrated archer found the elixir of life. Gave this to his wife who doesn’t know that it should not be consumed all at once. She consumed the whole bottle of elixir and floated to the moon. Hou Yi would then offer food to the moon every year so that Chang’e will never go hungry, and because they’re both well loved, other people took on this custom also.

Aside from the ones shared above there are a lot more stories about the Mid – Autumn Festival and to the rise of the moon cake. However, the real truth which is also the most widely accepted true story is that during the 14 century at the time of Yuan Dynasty when Mongols ruled the Han Chinese, mooncakes were used as medium of communication. The Mongols ruled the Chinese then, and there was a strict rule that the Chinese are not allowed to congregate. This is to make revolution harder. Because Chinese giving each other mooncakes during harvest season is a widely accepted tradition, the revolutionary leaders decided to distribute mooncakes with a message inside calling for a revolution on the 15th day of the 8th lunar month. The tactic was successful and the Mongols didn’t get wind of the plan. It will go down in history as one of the most bloodless and ‘peaceful’ revolution ancient China, because the Mongols were largely caught unaware thus there was not much fighting that happened.

This day, the paper inside gave way to salted duck egg yolk. It is also said the salted duck egg yolk represent the full moon.mooncake

The last story was largely purged during the time of Mao, to avoid giving the Chinese the idea of revolting against his leadership. To this day, China’s leaders refused to allow that this bit of history are included in their history books. Instead, they encourage the stories of Chang’e and Hou Yi or that there is a Moon Goddess.

Technically speaking the Mid – Autumn Festival or Mooncake Festival has nothing to do with Feng Shui or Taoism or Buddhism, but since Feng Shui experts has since taken on the practice of celebrating the Mid – Autumn Festival for good luck for the several reason. First, the Mid – Autumn Festival will always a few weeks after Hungry Ghost Month, so it is good to refreshed energies by some sort of celebration. Also, getting together for the Mid – Autumn Festival will also create a good chi that will help clean up the negative chi of Hungry Ghost Month.

Thus, Feng Shui experts suggested the start of the Dice Game or Mooncake Game or Mid – Autumn Game (Pua Tiong Chiu). For some Taoist priests, they advice the cleansing of the amulets or images used during the Hungry Ghost month, you do this by putting them on top of a rock salt or encircling them on top of an incense burner while an incense is lighted. I don’t really follow this Mid – Autumn cleansing rituals so much. For me, just celebrating the Mid – Autumn Festival with family is cleansing enough.

However, for those who wore their images Chung Kwei, Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva, Kuan Yin, Kuan Kong or their Wish Fulfilling and Buddha’s Blessing Mantra Pendant during the Hungry Ghost month, specially this year and felt they was a lot of negative chi may do so by following the suggested simple rituals in the previous paragraph.

A Reminder to Chant Two of the Most Powerful Mantras

Published August 27, 2014 by jptan2012

Recently a lot of people have been quite disappointed that the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT is no longer available for everybody. I now choose the people who seriously need it. This is because of the production delays in producing the pendant.

However, one need not despair because even if enjoys a very high personal testimonial success the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT is still only a tool to hasten this blessings. If you cannot avail of the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT I would like to remind you where it started by reading the post – RECEIVE SHOWERS OF BLESSINGS BY TAPPING TWO OF THE MOST POWERFUL MANTRAS.

Remember, chanting the mantras is still the best way to get blessings from the Buddhas and the Bodhisattvas.

Life Saved and Battling Nightmare by Chanting Mantras – A Personal Testimony of a Reader

Published August 14, 2014 by jptan2012

A few weeks ago I got an email from SD, single mother who works in the Middle East. She was requesting for the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT, our email exchanges lead to a phone conversation. I believe part of our conversation had me asking her to reconsider getting the pendant and suggested that she say some mantras instead. She mentioned that she indeed has started saying mantras.

According to SD, she used to have some weird dreams, dreams that are really scary and although she was unable to share all the details of her dreams she stressed that they are really scary. In fact, I can detect in her voice a little fear even if she was simply telling me about her dreams.

However, she said once she started chanting OM MANI PADME HUM the Mantra of the Bodhisattva of Compassion – Kuan Yin, her dreams has started to become different, in fact, they’ve started to become ‘sweet’ dreams instead of nightmares.

When chanting a mantra its best to chant it in a minimum of 108x. To help you keep track use a mala bead.

When chanting a mantra its best to chant it in a minimum of 108x. To help you keep track use a mala bead.

Without going into details, I think and believe that a lot of her dreams are psychic in nature. I say this because of some of the things she shared with me about what’s happening with her life. Having said this, the chanting of the mantras didn’t just change her dreams, her dreams changed because her life is changing for the better!

On top of that SD also believes that constantly chanting a mantra helped saved her life. She was driving, when she lost awareness of what was going on, it was just a split second but all of a sudden she lost control of the car she was driving and was about to bumped into another oncoming vehicle. From how I understood it, SD chanted OM MANI PADME HUM, and luckily she was able to immediately take control of the car again and she lived to tell the story.

Sharing this because I know a lot of us, myself included, sometimes tend to simply focus on having some wonderful amulet or charm to help fight off the negative energies around us. For example, a lot of people send me emails wanting to get the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT, but since making the pendant is very tedious for me because I have to count the bazi of the person who wants the pendant and because of production delays and other problems, I’m now making sure that the person really needs the pendant before agreeing to take on a request. However, SD’s testimony is proof that maybe if we put on time and effort maybe the personal testimonies about the chanting the mantras are going to be even more wonderful than the testimonies I get about the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT.

So I say, lets all put it effort in saying the mantras and get to see what miracles it will bring us.
